Check this out, while most of you were out goofing off at the 1rst annual gathering, I did this
You might have to register to see the pics, it's a sight just like this but for Land Cruiser geeks
After I finished up that, I bottled up my Pale Ale. :beer: 2 more weeks until yummy in my tummy.

Nice project Alvin! Dual-level load decks are the best way to increase storage.
I'd love to try some of your pale ale! I'm a Bass Ale drinker since when America still thought Michelob was a premium beer.
So . . .my project this weekend was the Tacoma, which my nephew and I went to work on yesterday. He attacked the timing belt replacement; I replaced a bad steering rack ball joint that the road to our house had destroyed. Then it was time to install the Old Man Emu shocks and springs. I pulled off both front spring/shock assemblies so we could take them to our friend who has spring compressors, then I pulled off the driver's side rear spring and both rear shocks.
It was then I discovered the shippers had included only one spring plate for the front springs, and had not included the correct rear spring bushings.
So all the old suspension went back on, since it will be mid-week at least before I can get the missing pieces.
What's annoying is that I actually did the right thing and looked in the box when it came. I saw a bag of bushings and thought, okay, bushings, check, and I saw a spring plate and thought, okay, check, they're in there too. Never thought to check for both plates and make sure the bushings were the correct ones. Jeez . . .

Thanks Jonathan, I needed to make more space but couldn't go big$$ for it.
BTW all guests of my humble abode are provided with good ale when I have some.
I have some Scottish ale that will be drinkable next week and the Pale in 2 weeks.

Very nice job Alvin. You are paying attention to the important things! Organization is so critical.

I made some improvements to the storage deck. Take another look at the thread linked above. Less than $150 total. :Wow1:
